File Next To Eagulls, Viet Cong
Based In Sydney
Boyfriend is the latest single from Sydney indie/post-rock band Hedge Fund, which features a captivating video featuring the writhing talents of everyone’s favourite Jordan Markovina, AKA friendlyjordies. The song echoes the frantic and powerful images of the video, with a melody that won’t be leaving your head any time soon.
File Next To Bastille, Two Door Cinema Club
Based In Brooklyn, NY
Contagion is a fresh slice of uplifting pop rock, melding influences of the electronic movement and the bouncy beats of the disco era. The quintet have an EP coming out next year so make sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled for it.
Track The Knife
File Next To Eurythmics, Robyn
Based In Adelaide
With a very 80’s vibing track and an equally 80’s video, Radeladians Nakatomi are obviously heavily influenced by the colourful electronic sounds of eras past but also of the Scandi sound of artists like Robyn, The Knife and Royksopp. Heaps of fun.
File Next To Sarah Blasko, early Sia
Based In Perth
With a powerful and moving track, Bri Clark’s voice will give you shivers (sorry, had to be done). A pop track with soul, substance and emotion, Bri’s voice is deep, smooth and faultless. She’s gearing up to play a string of festival dates in WA, so it’s only time until we hear about her here over on the east coast, let alone further abroad.
Track Chip Off The Heart
File Next To The Ting Tings, CSS
Based In Regina, Canada
Chip Off The Heart is the bouncing, delightful indie dance track and also the first single of the band’s Vessels LP which is due out on the 20th of November, on DevilDuck Records. With a great animated video that channels Franz Ferdinand’s Take Me Outvideo, this is a song that takes the best of mid noughties English indie and gives it a fresh, fun and exciting feel.
Track Better Man
File Next To Laura Marling, Joanna Newsom
Based In Leicester, UK
A delicate, layered but moving track rounded out with a string section and a sprinkling of organ, Better Man is a beautiful track from singer/songwriter/guitarist Martha Bean. Her voice is smooth, comforting and floats above the soft instrumentation that highlights this enchanting track.
